Voyeurism is the sexual interest in or practice of watching other people engaged in intimate behaviours, such as undressing, sexual activity or other actions usually considered to be of a private nature.
The term comes from the French voir which means "to see". A male voyeur is commonly labelled as "Peeping Tom" or a "Jags", a term which originates from the Lady Godivalegend. However, that term is usually applied to a male who observes somebody secretly and, generally, not in a public space.
